. particularly we passed by a powerful bipartisan vote of 89-8, a bill that avoided tax increases for 99% of americans and extended emergency unemployment benefits for another year and protected us from the fiscal cliff. when it comes to legislating, the senate actually has a pretty strong bipartisan record. how did those senate bills do on the house side? well, the house couldn't pass its own highway bill. congress has been doing highway bills since the eisenhower years. this isn't rocket science. the house couldn't do one. the best the house of representatives could do was to pass a short-term extension that allowed some of their members to get to conference on the senate bill. but they took no bill into conference because they couldn't pass one. even then they delayed the conference negotiations and they cost the united states of america an entire summer construction season for highway construction, putting thousands of jobs in jeopardy before they finally came around and passed an amended version of the senate bipartisan highway bill. so their record on the highway bill is nothing to

on various things with regard to economic reform, tax reform, immigration reform. i think that there's little doubt the president would be willing to compromise if the other party is willing to meet him part of the way. the other party job is to see how much it came at for its side and giving the issues we've been through, such as the fiscal cliff, the fact is there's no way out of these issues without compromise. i do think we will see compromise on something like immigration reform because democrat fixes destiny and the republicans as well as democrats recognize that they have to show some support for immigration reform if they're not going to in the case of republicans, lose the hispanic population permanently to the republican party. so the president has already, i believe, shown willingness to compromise and all that data show that republicans are the party has moved further to the right and democrats have moved to the left, although both have moved to the extreme. i think we're going to see the president because he won the election been tough for rhetorically about not compromising, alt

. >> let me reiterate what i think is pretty clear to everyone. new year's eve, the taxes went up for everybody in the night. senate senate republicans in the majority of the house voted to make 99% of the bush tax cuts permanent, thereby preventing another event like new year's eve. that came about because the law sunsetted. i would eventually say there is not a single republican vote in the house or senate to provide more revenue and the reason for that is we all know that revenue is not the problem. $200,000, or $250,000 per couple, this is not a revenue problem, this is a spending problem. so yes, the revenue issue is behind us. and whatever new taxes the president is going to get, he got by operation of law on new year's eve and we now going to focus on the real problem is not that we taxed too little, but that we spend too much. and yes, that is where we are. >> [inaudible question] >> i have a couple thoughts about the debt ceiling in general. it's been used 20 times since the 1950s for major spending reform. you will remember the clinton republican congress deficit reducti
